While searching the locations, Quentin nds out that Algoe, New York was also called paper towns. Also, in the discussion section, it said, fyi, whoever Edit this - the Population of algoe Will actually be One until may 29th at Noon Green Quentin realizes that this is Margos writing because of its unusual capitalization.

But because it is graduation day, he visits school, tells his parents that he is going to miss graduation, and leaves with his friends on a road trip to Algoe.
The Vessel: Agloe Quentin and his friends are all in Quentins minivan driving and theyre preparing for their rst stop at the gas station BP. As theyre preparing a list of items to download, theyre also calculating the maximum amount of time that they can take at the stop in order to reach Agloe as scheduled or as early as possible. Soon, they pull into the gas station and everyone rushes out to do their job of shopping at the store and to ll the gas.
Everyone is moving like lightning and after exactly six minutes as they had planned, they leave the gas station. As theyre driving again, they take the supplies that they downloadd and categorize them into order. While categorizing the downloads, they talk about the food they downloadd, and Radar and Ben wear the new t-shirts they bought over their graduation gown.

The Vessel: Agloe The Vessel: Hour Twelve - Hour Twenty-one About half way through the trip, Quentin and Ben start to get into a minor argument about nding Margo and as Quentin is about to curst at Ben, he sees two cows in the way while hes driving.
Quentin believes that hes going to die with all his friends because there was no way to stop the car, but Ben takes control of the wheel and turns to the side avoiding hitting the cows and in fact, saves everyone.
As a consequence of almost an accident, Quentin gets injured and the glass bottles where drinks and beer were all cracked.

The Vessel: Agloe Finally, they arrive at Agloe and follow a path and as soon as Lacey discovers Margos car, everyone runs to the deserted barn where the car is parked.
Margo is found to be writing in her mysterious black notebook and she acts surprised to see them all of a sudden. Then, Margo and Quentin start to talk but their frustration lead to minor quarrel but they start to talk things out.
Margo explains to Quentin what the black notebook is and Margo tells Quentin the story that she wrote in fth grade. Also, Margo tells Quentin the real reason why she left earlier than planned and how shes a paper girl and the town of Orlando isnt a paper town. What did you think about the fact that Quentin stepped back while Margo stepped forward towards the dead body?
What does that say about the 2 characters? The fact that Margo stepped forward shows that Margo was a girl curious with her surrondings, always wanting to seek adventure, as she shows by investigating this entire thing. However, Quentin is more of a guy who does not seek pleasure in investigating things like this and is instead quite scared of it.
You meet Ben and Radar in this section. How do you think their personalities make them good friends for Quentin? Ben is a outgoing guy, not afraid to speak his mind, especially on girls.
He is somewhat the exact opposite of Quentin, but they seem to get along because of their oppositeness. Radar is somewhat a nerd, always being on Omnictionary all the time, but his smarts and his coolness is something that attracts him towards Q.
Why do you think Margo came to Quentin instead of anyone else? Perhaps it was the fact that they are next door neighbors that Margo came to Quentin, or maybe it was the fact that Margo likes Quentin a little bit. It is shown that she does not hate him for she talks about how she always told people to go easy on him, something that Quentin had noticed himself.
Section 2: Part 1 Ch 1. Why do you think that Margo compared the town to a paper town? I think she compared it to a paper town because she thought of how Chapter Study Questions everything the people cared about in the town was like paper, something that didnt matter and was so fragile, yet people always wanted it.
She also probably wanted to emphasize how everything was so fake and not real. What did you think about how Margo knew the security guard to the SunTrust building, and how she was pretty friendly with him? I think that Margo seems to be extremely popular, and seems to have other friends than just those in school. It shows how mysterious her life is, and how much of her life is unknown to Q.
It also shows that Q is not the only one she depends on, as she knows other people to go to, which perhaps shows that Q is somewhat trusted.
What is happening at the part where they are dancing together? Do you think Margo trusted Q, or wanted to fall? After all, she chose him to come along on this last adventure which shows that she had some sense of trust in Q. Or she could just have wanted to fall all along and Q was only brought because he had access to a car and she was right next door.
Section 3: Part 2 Ch 1. Why do you think Margo decided to hide a note inside the doorknob? Margo decided to hide it in Quentins doorknob because as we saw earlier.
Margo had taken Q on her revenge trip and perhaps she trusted him enough to leave him notes and clues to where she could be. Also it is known that she would leave clues to her disappearance to raise the suspense to where she could be. Why do you think Margo leave the clues for Quentin?
Chapter Study Questions a. Perhaps Margo left clues for Quentin because of the fact that they were childhood friends and she wanted only him to nd her. Or it could be that she was always in love with him since childhood and he was the only non-paper person to her. What is signicant about the place that Quentin, Radar, and Ben went to after discovering Margos note?
The place is signigicant because it is a supposed deserted area that Margo had visited. It adds mystery to the plot and to the character Margo, while showing that her life was not what it seemed at rst.
Section 4: Part 2 Ch 1. What is the signicance of Quentin being late for school?
For the rst time in his life, Quentin had been tardy. He had no absences or tardies in his entire lifetime, yet this was his rst time. It shows how hard he is working to look for Margo, and shows how devoted he is to nding her. Why do you think Ben and Radar are helping Quentin to nd Margo when nobody else is?
I think they are helping out only for the excitement of everything. They dont really seem to care about Margo when it does not relate to them, but when they are going out on adventures they seem to care only for the fun of the adventure. With all the clues and trails, do you think Margo wants to be found? Perhaps Margo really wants to be found but, then again with the clues not leading to anywhere important, it is easy to think that Margo does not truly want to be found.
Perhaps she is just leading him in circles until her Chapter Study Questions dead body is found. So it is hard to wonder what she is actually thinking. Section 5: Part 2 Ch 1. Why do you think that the progress of nding Margo hasnt been successful? I believe that Q has not been successful in nding Margo because of the empty clues that he keeps getting.
Perhaps that he is not understanding something properly, or it could be that he is simply following a trail that leads to nowhere. What do you think about the fact that Q seems to always end up in an empty lot instead of nding Margo? I think it is admirable that Q does not give up even after ending up at plenty of empty lots during his search for Margo. In fact, each time he ends up at an empty lot, Qs determination seems to go up even higher, because he is knocking off one possible place she could be at and getting closer to the truth.
Do you think it is foolish or wise to ditch graduation for a chance to meet Margo? I believe that it is both foolish and wise to ditch for a chance to meet Margo.
For one, it is foolish because they are missing out on the one last event of their high school career, all for a lead that may or may not turn out to be real. But on the other hand, according to their evidence, it is the last day that Margo will stay in that area, thus it is worth it because they can risk never having another chance to meet her again.
Chapter Study Questions Section 6: Part 3 1. Margo seemed to react much too surprisingly, as if she did not expect them to ever show up. Perhaps her expectations were that people would nd the clues, but would never nd her until way later in the future. Why do you think Q did not want to follow Margo along on her trip to New York? I believe that Q did not want to follow Margo because he understood that, he was not like Margo.
He was not a person who could just get up and leave the world he had left behind like that. So he decided to let Margo leave by herself, and allow her to have the freedom she want.
What is important about the graves of Little Q and Little Margo? It shows that they had nally put their past to rest, and they were heading towards the future.
The act brings the story to an end, and gives closure to everything they had thought when they were young. Thus, it is a important to end the book this way, since it started off with Little Q and Little Margo.

Quentin goes to the minimall. Gus who knew Margo since they were at high school was inside the mall with his friends. Unit Test Answer Key Although everyone survived, Quentin got injured and the glass bottles of drinks and beer all cracked.
Essay: 1. Quentin's inability to freely express his emotion towards Margo is mainly caused by shy characteristic of Quentin and the time when Margo knocked on the window of Quentin at midnight.
Quentin is a character with shy personality. It is not easy for shy people to condently show emotions to other people especially to one who they love. Shyness of Quentin is the primary factor that causes his relationship with Margo to be suffocating.
Her list provides no insight into her plans for the evening, and so heightens the sense of mystery surrounding her, while her unconventional capitalization creates an aura of studied quirkiness. Though she seems nonchalant, there is a sense that everything Margo does is intended to create a certain impression.
Active Themes When he returns to the car, Quentin worries aloud that Duke University, where he plans to attend college, will revoke his admission if he gets arrested. Margo expresses amazement at the fact that Quentin can be interested in things like college, school, or the future.
She goes on an unprompted diatribe about her belief that, as the average human life span has lengthened, people have begun to spend more and more of their lives planning for the future. She claims that this pattern has reached a point where every moment of life is lived for the future.
Margo has now become very open and eager to talk about her personal philosophy. Her distaste for the idea of living for the future— planning for a career and an adult life, as the people who surround her tend to — suggests dissatisfaction with the life she is living and path she is on, and her desire to do something more fulfilling in the present rather than wait and hope to be happy later on.
She promises that everything will become clear before the night ends, and changes the subject by taking an air horn from the shelf. Quentin orders her not to blow it, but she blows it anyway. While Margo is happy to talk about her abstract ideas, she keeps Quentin ignorant of the basic facts.
This allows her to maintain control of both him and their situation, but is also evidence of her desire to talk about things that bother her —something Quentin does not notice or respond to.
